that to? >> i think we are at a fiscal and economic cliff. i think we have pursued government spending programs that have created a debt that is out of control. at the convention come after talking, i went home to my hotel at 1:30 a.m. and i was looking on my iphone at twitter. and the comedian paula pound stone had sent a tweet that evening. i don't know her, but she said " ted cruz just said that, when his daughter was born, the debt was $5 trillion and now it is $16 trillion. what the heck did she do?" [laughter] >> you think the debt is putting the nation in crisis. >> along with government spending, is causing the dead. we have seen a growing expansion in the power of the federal government. it is crippling small businesses. >> you are the national co-chair of the obama-bided campaign. >> i would put the challenge that we have as a nation in a different context. and say that, to the extent that we are a nation in "crisis," although i would not describe it as that because i believe that we can fundamentally overcome this and that we can do it in a fairly rational and reasonable way
in the transition to democracy, i am convinced that ultimately government of the people, by the people, and for the people is more likely to bring about prosperity and individual opportunity to serve as a basis for peace in our world. host: in "the herald," they put it this way -- host: dallas, texas. bob, independent line. caller: i am more of a liberal, but i applied my beliefs liberally to all issues. when the iranian president speaks about eliminating or wiping israel off the map, we must remember that one country was eliminated, wiped out, and that was palestine. no one speaks to that. he does not speak about annihilating. and i hate to defend him. he is all the things i find abhorrent as a liberal, but this year, we try to demonize this person when the issue is israel, a theocracy in the middle east that eliminated another country off the map, palestine. it is only for people within the same religion. it is ridiculous. and his support comes from, you know, the same people who support that right here in america. thank you. host: carol, california. what is the name of your town? go
's presence. they think tice was being detained in august but the government has not acknowledged it. happening in frib, gunmen opened fire on a university in northeastern nigeria. 20 people are now dead. no one has claimed responsibility for the attack but it happened in an area that's been a targeted by islamic militants. we are deeply sorry for what happened. that is the response from ikea. the swedish retail giant came under criticism for intentionally removing photos of women in catalogs that were shipped to saudi arabia. the company is investigating why these photos were omitted in the first place. saudi arabia does not prohibit the presence of women in marketing materials. and hong kong, 38 people are dead in the territory's deadliest maritime accident in decades. a passenger ferry collided with another boat last night off of lamma. police have arrested seven screw members from the boats and rescue crews are still looking for survivors. >> reporter: a night of celebration turned to tragedy as water rushed in through the boat's hull. >> translator: the boat was standing straigh
perspective when it comes to the tune of government than i do. i think you believe that government is the wherewithal for what we need in this country. i do not. i believe in private enterprise, private responsibility, but i thank you for your service. welcome for that service. i respect that she is a mother, a rancher, a small business person. i think she is campaigning in all three of those things they have a great deal of respect for what she did on a school board and a legislature. you are always putting yourself at risk. we have fundamental disagreements. the negative advertising, in one year and -- on you have to do is avoid watching television is not a bad option. what she just said is not true. i started a business in nebraska, and the first thing i had to do to start our business must get a permit from the city office, talk to the county, the state. i understand that government does not create jobs. i understand you've got to be careful with taxes and regulation to make that hpen. thats political rhetoric in my view, and it does not resemble the facts. she said it is diffu
worthy opponent's plan, which will increase the size of government dramatically. his plan is three times larger than president clinton's proposed plan eight years ago. it is a plan that will have 200 new programs -- expanded programs and creates 20,000 new bureaucrats. it it empowers washington. tonight you're going to hear that my passion and my vision is to empower americans to be able to make decisions for themselves in their own lives. >> so i take it by your answer, then, mr. vice president, that in an interview recently with the "new york times" when you said that you questioned whether or not governor bush has experience enough to be president, you were talking about strictly policy differences. >> yes, jim. i said that his tax cut plan, for example, raises the question of whether it's the right choice for the country. and let me give you an example of what i mean. under governor bush's tax cut proposal, he would spend more money on tax cuts for the wealthiest 1% than all of the new spending that he proposes for education, health care, prescription drugs and national defense all c
to the information we share as a government, as a nation, as a community helps them write their own story of hope and healing. as one gentleman posted on the voices of recovery page at recoverymonth.gov -- getting and living well with a merger program of recovery is the greatest part of my autobiography i have to offer. the data we released today will shine a light on the status of drug use in america, and help l of us see where we are making gains, and where we need to work harder to address these critical public health issues. the matter what the data tells us about substance abuse and the disease of addiction, we release this data during this month to underscore that people can and do recover. as of heard, we are in the 20th year in serving the nation. and the national recovery month is in its 23rd year. this month acknowledges and celebrates recovery from addiction and mental illness, of advances int science -- through evidence based practices and thousands upon thousands of united voices of recovery across the country. recovery has captured an audience and is rallying in nations. about this
. it's a little more complicated than that. the federal government's was offering massachusetts $385 million, i believe, and that covered about half of the cost of providing care to uninsured people. governor romney had said at i have an opportunity to save the state a lot of money, because if we did not take the federal money, it would have gone away, we would not have access to it anymore. with health care reform, we are able to accept this large sum of money and free some of the cost of providing care for people who don't have health insurance. host: we're learning about the health care law that governor romney signed into law in massachusetts with the reports from the boston herald christine mcconvillechristine. she's been with the herald five years. she also reported for the boston globe before that. we have a phone line set up especially for massachusetts residents. and republicans and democrats can call us as well as independent scholars. -- callers. let's look at some details of how the health care law has played out. 98% of adults are now covered. nearly 100% of children are
. >> 47% of the people who vote for the president no matter what. who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe the government has the responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it. and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those. i'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility. >> top of the hour a live look at the white house on a rainy friday morning in washington. welcome back to "morning joe." we're here in washington. sam is still with us along with mark halperin up in new york and joining the table here in d.c. we've got a great group. former -- my professor? >> your professor. >> am i a good student professor gingrich? >> much better than me. you were my favorite student. >> wow. >> former white house secretary under president clinton and contributing editor to "vanity fair" dee dee myers is with us as well. okay. >> we just have a fascinating conversation. the contents of which we won't say completely on the air. >> oh. >> b
, there are a lot of small-government conservatives that don't think we should be spending over $2 billion a week in afghanistan, who don't think the president should have tripled down the number of troops when he had a chance to pull back and bring those troops home. a lot of conservatives believe that. i think this is a missed opportunity. >> well, and foreign policy clearly is going to be an area where mitt romney will want to make a turn in terms of the narrative of the campaign. one other issue that is now coming into the forefront is the benghazi attack and news over the weekend that the four americans including the u.s. ambassador there who were killed according to politico, romney advisers are now split over how broadly they should hit the president over his handling of that attack. and why it took so long to acknowledge that it was an act of terrorism. while some romney advisers argue they should keep their focus on the economy, politico says plans are in the works for mitt romney to deliver a major foreign policy speech shortly after wednesday's debate. what do you think of that? you th
hasn't been seen or heard from since august 13th. that's the last date of contact. u.s. government investigation has gone cold until a disturbing video clip appeared monday on the facebook page of supporters for syrian president bashar al assad. it had been posted on youtube six days ago. a warning, some viewers may find the following video upsetting. it shows austin theiss being led away. blindfolded and in broken arabic, he recites portions of a prayer, and then shows signs of distre distress. >> oh, jesus. >> reporter: the disturbing video was not released on any known extremist website. the state department can't verify whether the man in the video is austin theiss, but friends say the man featured is the 41-year-old former marine. some suggested that the video may be staged, pointing to the clothing that is native to afghanistan, not syria, and the forced recitation of a prayer. >> almost as if they watched tapings and video clips of men and fighters in afghanistan and tried to mimic their behavior, but did so in a very poor manor. >> reporter: before theiss vanished, he had b
surrounded by and he's surrounded himself by in his life personally and in government and in the professional world, but i think he needs to be more specific. he doesn't need to be scared to come out and explain why something like the lily ledbetter act is a bad policy for women. i think he needs to say, look, the wage gap is a myth, let me tell you why, and let me tell you how valuable women are to the work force. if he does that, i think women will at the very least feel as though he's talking to them. jenna: that's very interesting. as a mom, do you think that the republican party in the years to come will be a party that you can see your daughters being spoken to directly, or is this an issue that's evolving, something that it's going to have to confront over the next several years, not just in the next election? >> it's going to be a long time coming. i think they really need to begin to tie those core issues, things like energy prices and how that connects to the cost of milk to women. i think they need to remember that women are soaring to the top of every educational and professional
businesses, job creators and do more to have a government-centered economy. which is what we've had for the past four years and we're still at 8.1 unemployment with 23 million americans looking for jobs. i think that president obama can't change the facts on wednesday night. and i think the contrast will be very clear. so i look forward to seeing that. >> let's talk about the figure, 8.1% unemployment that could be a conservative estimate. when you take into the fact the folks who have just stopped looking. that's been the economic reality in this country for several months now. but governor romney has not been able to move the needle. in fact in many of the battleground states, the needle has started to move in the opposite direction for him. despite these numbers that you just pointed out. why is that? why is the message not resonated yet with just 37 days left? >> you know, i think like i've mentioned earlier. the polls will tighten. you're going to see independents are still very interested, following this very closely. independents are very pro romney and i think you're going t
